Do you have a Yugoslavian API to compare with? These are very similar in design, but constructed slightly different than the Soviet pattern… I’ve noted from my collection of sectioned 7.62x39mm that all of the Warsaw Pact and Egyptian manufactured API are identical and the Yugo seems to be the only non-conformists.

Anyone seen a sectioned Iraqi 7.62x39mm API?

Are the known specimens authentic?




all “Iraqi” 7,62x39 API looked like imports to me, Czechoslovak to be precise. So better do not expect any surprises there.



Small addition to the Russian API cutaways
